Steeped in history and the one thing that most people associate with China is here . The terracotta warriors are a world away from today but it is as unbelievable now as it must have been then . Xians muslim area has some great out door food stands that are jam packed at 8pm with all sorts of mad stuff to eat . Never mind the guided tours that all the hotels and travel agents try to get you roped into . Go it alone and it will work out much more interesting and much , much cheaper . You will see from these photos that we have our own James Galway with us !
